It is an effortless thing to sit back and think of the legends,
traditions and history that abound in the past of UNC. The part
the University has played in the development of North Carolina
an be traced as easily as steps at the seashore.
But what does the future hold for UNC?
The Russian, "Sputnik", Governor Hodges' program of in
dustrializing the state and the overall industrial emphasis now
abroad in the Southeast have spotlighted education in North
Since fall, 1957, education has been re-evaluated and re
appraised nationally. Changes are being made, emphasis shifted
and the process has not been lost upon North Carolinians.
The spring debate over the amount of money to be allocated
to the state education programs headlined some of the weak
nesses in the state education program. Facts and figures showed
places where the University had slipped and long-range pro
jections showed other places where weaknesses would most like- .
Still not enough money was appropriated to meet entirely
the needs of the University, but enough was granted to perhaps

Thillip Kennedy, the "Tar Heel Troubadour", will be featured
in a concert of folk songs and ballads next Tuesday at 7:30 p.m.
under Davie Poplar.
Kennedy, a U.N.C. graduate, is presently a research assistant
at WUNC-TV. In the spring of 1958 he recorded a series of
programs titled "Songs and Ballads of the Tar Heel Troubadour"
which will be presented over WUNC this fall.
Kennedy's program will include "Santy Ajina, Song of the
Cottonwood Tree", "Shenandoah", "The Missouri Mule from Ar
kansas" and many ethers. Student Activities Council presents
the program and invites all to attend. In case cf rain, Kennedy
will retreat to the Graham Memorial Lounge.

let the University hold its own. North Carolina, like some other
states, lacked the finances for anything more.
Outside of this big financial problem, the future for Uni
versity growth and expansion of the University could hardly look
better. Increased enrollment, the Univac 1105 and the Research
Triangle offer unlimited opportunities for expansion. The Uni
versity, undoubtedly, stands upon the threshold of an era when
it can and will serve North Carolina more than ever.
In 1921, the University's total enrollment was only 1,733
students; in the fall of 1958 enrollment was 7,513 and a pro
jected view anticipates a total enrollment of 14,921 in 1970.
Such spurts in the enrollment of a university entail much
planning, development and expansion if the University is to
continue producing graduates of the highest calibre. And second
rate education will not do.
Carolina is fortunate to have leadership aware of the im
portance of keeping pace with the increased educational stride
of the last half of the twentieth century. .
This realization was voiced by Consolidated University Presi-
